The Las Vegas Raiders are open to the possibility of giving Colin Kaepernick a spot on their roster, NBC Sports reports.
Mark Davis, Las Vegas Raiders owner, said he's willing to give Kaepernick a chance with team personnel's blessings.
Davis told Monte Poole on NBC Sports’ Race in America: A Candid Conversation, “Listen, I believe in Colin Kaepernick, and he deserves every chance in the world to become a quarterback in the National Football League.”
The Raiders owner continued, “I still stand by it. If our coaches and general manager want to bring him in or want him to be the quarterback on this team, I would welcome him with open arms.”
As the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback continues to train for an NFL comeback, Davis is the only owner to make public remarks of interest. However the QB spot is currently taken by Derek Carr in Vegas, so Kaepernick would most likely ride the bench if signed.
Earlier this month, the former 49er expressed that he would be satisfied with returning as a second-string.
"I know I have to find my way back in. So, if I have to come in as backup, that's fine," Kaepernick said on I AM AN ATHLETE.
"But that's not what where I'm staying. And when I prove that I'm a starter, I want to be able to step on the field as such. I just need that opportunity to walk through the door," the quarterback continued.
Kaepernick, who was last NFL active in 2016, has been relentlessly posting training videos and hosting exhibitions since March.
